You do not mention anything about your age, skating ability or hockey experience.

Appreciate that stand-up goalies that have great movement like a Dominik Hasek are excellent skaters.

If you want to learn from and observe stand-up goalies watch the veteran league teams in your area. Such leagues feature adult players over the age of 35 into their 60s and the goalies usually are stand-up types. You would learn even more by talking with them.
